Crosby/Ovy/Stamkos would all make more. Montreal/Toronto would bid like crazy for any 18 year old super kid on the market.

The EPL, no union for players and they get 70% of revenue. Of coarse there are only 5 teams that matter.
A capless system works better for a relegation system like the EPL. There are over a hundred leagues (not teams, LEAGUES) in their pyramid system and struggling for promotion or against relegation makes every contest exciting for a fan of a local team. Not so well for a franchise system, where being a perennial loser just means the possibility of a declining fanbase and folding.
